Sandeep Gursahani, once of the Mumbai’s legendary Taj Hotel has assembled a team of chefs who have all worked in 5 star kitchens in the city and has created a colourful Bollywoodesque backdrop.  The laminated eight-page “Mumba Mail” newsletter serves as both menu and an introduction to icons such as Sachin Tendulkar, the Chor Bazar ‘Thief Market’, Bollywood inevitably and the Dabbawala. The latter are the city’s tiffin box deliverers, who by bicycle and other energy-efficient means provide 200,000 cooked lunches to workers each day (beat that, Deliveroo). Their ‘street food’ section features Pav, a kind of local burger, fried Pakodas and several variants on Puris, those delicate, hollow pastries with spicy fillings, Chaat salads and, of course Masala Dosa with Sambar, the South Indian breakfast pancake. Prices for these small dishes hover around the  £3.50-£3.95 mark. From the Tandoor oven TOM recommends Fish Haryali Tikka and the Veg Sizzler Plate – highlight the Paneer Tikka (spicy, grilled Indian cheese).
